Even salvation can be delivered through the love of the damned…
Beauty can be a curse.
Faith can be a cage.
Only love can set you free.
A few long weeks after being reluctantly ripped from the comforting embrace of her sacred prophet’s religious commune—the only life she has ever known—a terrified Delilah is thrust into a world enveloped by evil and swimming in sin.
Steadfastly devout in her faith, and retaining the deep belief that her soul is innately tarnished as a branded ‘Cursed woman of Eve,’ Delilah is determined to find her way home to her people in The Order and away from the corrupt and damned outlaw motorcycle club—The Hades Hangmen—who hold her at their secluded compound for her protection—a 'protection' she strongly resents.
Delilah yearns to return home, convinced that only amongst her own people, and under the holy guidance of the Lord’s revealed prophet, can her Satan-spawned soul be truly saved. Conditioned her entire life to believe she is a witch... a life-long temptress… the devil’s whore... Delilah increasingly resents her beautiful face, her shapely body and her sensuous effect on men. But when a man of the motorcycle club—a deeply sinful yet stunningly beautiful man—is charged with her care, Delilah begins to see that this dangerous and moralless sinner from the 'outside' may offer her something she did not know could truly exist: unconditional love.
Kyler ‘Ky’ Willis loves his life: a daily abundance of brotherhood, liquor, the freedom of the open-road and—best of all—his pick of hot women. Raised a biker brat and now VP of the most notorious MC in the States, Ky has no shortage of club sluts warming his bed; a situation he takes full advantage of… until a certain blonde enters his life… a gorgeous pilgrim-blonde he can’t get out of his head… a pilgrim-blonde he and his club recently-rescued from some backward religious cult… and a pilgrim-blonde he’s been ordered to keep the hell away from and his whorish hands off.
When yet another in a lengthy line of drunken blunders forces Ky to reluctantly take charge of the pilgrim-blonde’s care, he realizes that there could be more to this woman than just supermodel looks and a stacked set of tits. He begins to see that she could be the woman who could do the impossible—tame his wild ways and capture his reluctant heart.
But the unyielding bonds of Lilah’s past are strong, her ‘people’ determined and, with a new Prophet in charge and hell bent on revenge, they are mightily reluctant to let her go...
4.5 Heartbreaking Stars!!
What a bloody roller-coaster!
I will be honest when I heard book 2 in the Hades Hangman series would be about Ky I was just like Meh..When can I have Flame? I was excited to read more about Flame and well I did get some Flame. Not enough to satisfy me but hey I will patiently wait for the next book because this book was awesome. I didn't think I would like it much, didn't know what could happen next and I was a little apprehensive thinking it may become repetitive. But no Tillie Cole did it again!!
I felt safe with Ky. I knew he was my protector... And even out in this unfamiliar world, and with as little time spent with him as I had had, I instinctively knew he would protect me from danger.
I fell in love with Ky and his love and patience. And my heart broke for Lilah I wanted to hug her and tell her everything would be alright.But then I also wanted to shake her and tell her everything she learnt was a lie!! But how do you explain to someone that everything they believed was wrong and its not her fault it just the horrible people she was around.
'We had been forced to exist after being ripped from our home, ripped from all we knew: the commune. The Order. The Lord’s Prophet. We belonged with God’s Chosen Ones.'
I never thought it would take her that long to adapt but the more you read the more you discover about her life, what she went through as a child and how it changed things for her.It made it so difficult for her to let go of her beliefs. She isn't like Mae, she didn't run away, she was forced to leave a place she thought of as home.She wants to be back there and the new world she lives in, she can't understand it.
We are introduced to new characters who basically become like family. That's what they all are, one big family. I loved it and can not wait for more..obviously because more means Flame's book which hellooo I want..like yesterday!! I loved the Flame bits we got and the ending what Ky was willing to do to make Lilah happy!! ahhhh I do love a happily ever after. Well done Tillie, don't ever stop writing ;)
